Dale Carnegie’s Solution to Worry--Prayer

We can forget about what tomorrow brings - we can quit worrying - because if we love Almighty God and have faith in Him, everything will work out for our good! Down through the centuries, many who have tried Him have found that to be true!

The late great American writer and lecturer, Dale Breckenridge Carnegie (1888 - 1955), tried it! He said, "When I am so busy that I do not have time to pray then I know that it is time to pray. I just forget everything and go to church. I yield myself to God, and the tension and anxiety go out of me and peace and power come in."
